MOMpreneur Spotlight A Dentists Kids Love Going To
I see ALOT of family expert’s offices, but when I took my daughter to this amazing Pediatric Dentist I knew we were some place special. My daughter felt right at home playing with the train table in the front, as she watched Frozen. Then I had the honor to meet Dr. Talia Pike Founder of Pike Pediatric Dentistry. I just had to find out her secret to being an amazing mom and business owner, all while creating an environment where kids LOVE going to the dentist!
What is the best part of being a MOMpreneur?
The best part about being a MOMpreneur is having the ability to teach my daughters that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. As my daughters grow, they will learn that they can have a well balanced life with a thriving business. I want them to know that they can be confident, self-sufficient empowering women.
After graduating dental school in 2006, I worked as an associate dentist for 3 years in a private practice. I learned from a very experienced dentist how to run a successful dental practice. It was then when I knew I wanted to open my own practice when I was finished with my Pediatric Dental residency program.
How has being a MOMpreneur affected your mom life? (LOVE THE HONESTY HERE!)
Michelle-I have to laugh at this one….it has made motherhood more difficult for me ? my kids act crazier when I get home cause they want my attention lol. Unfortunately my hours as a Pediatric Dentist don’t allow me to spend much time with my kids as I work when school is out (I am busiest during the holidays/closed school days) which is the biggest challenge in my career.
As a MOMpreneur how do you find balance?
Finding balance has been the most challenging aspect in my life since starting my business and becoming a mother. I cherish every single weeknight/weekend with my family. We go out to dinner once a week as a family and my husband and I make it a point to have a date night at least once a week. It is very true when people say “kids grow up so fast”, so my husband and I try our best to enjoy every moment and make a point to take weekend family vacations when possible. As the Dean of my dental school always stated, “don’t forget to stop and smell the roses”.
What is your dream ME TIME?
The dream “me time” scenario would be a spa day….AHHHHH. I’m sitting at my desk day dreaming about it now.
What is your greatest piece of advice to Make Motherhood Easier?
My advice is that it is definitely possible to find balance in being a successful business owner and having a family. It isn’t always easy and it’s nice to know that there are other moms that will support you and know how you feel. You can be happy and make all of your dreams come true. It does not matter how long it takes to get there, as long as you reach your goal in the end.
